The benefits of robotics

There are many possible uses for robotics in airports.

By putting people back at the centre of the process, robotics can offer a smoother, more personalised and unique experience.


Robotics in the airport setting
This is why Groupe ADP is working on installing robotic assistance in various roles, both industrial and commercial. The goal is to be able to quickly industrialise new technologies to improve customer satisfaction and our competitiveness with other airports.

Our other tests


Groupe ADP is currently testing the use of drones in our airport facilities to inspect the condition of certain buildings and equipment. New uses, such as testing the effectiveness of smoke detectors or preventive surveillance, are leading us to carefully study the role of drones in the airport environment.


Robotics: use case 

Groupe ADP is testing a new service in a car park at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. The concept combines the advantages of a traditional valet with modern robotics (optimising parking capacity, smart parking, etc.) This service will help reduce the time that travellers spend parking.


In 2015, Groupe ADP launched a project to evaluate opportunities to use robotics in its airports. In September 2015, the Innovation Hub held a conference on the theme of collaboration between humans and robots. There are numerous examples, both industrial (facility monitoring, cleaning, baggage handling, etc.) and commercial (reception, information, new services, etc.).
